Do you ever find yourself reading about the love life of say, Khloé Kardashian, and get déjà vu? Certain stars seem to date the same “type” over and over again—even if they keep getting burned. While so many celebs want to go against type in their professional projects, they just can’t help but stick with what they know in their love lives. Here’s a look at some of the most notorious stars and the types they can’t stay away from:
Type: Rock stars
We know that Kate cemented her place in Hollywood as “band-aid” Penny Lane in the movie Almost Famous. So perhaps life does imitate art because it was right around the time the movie hit big that Kate started dating The Black Crowes lead singer Chris Robinson. They were married on New Year’s Eve in 2000, had their son Ryder in 2004 but sadly split in 2006. And then she met Muse front man Matthew Bellamy in 2010 and it seemed like Kate had a second chance at a rock n' roll fairy tale. They got engaged and had their son Bingham in 2011—but sadly announced in 2014 they weren’t going to make it down the aisle after all. And while Nick Jonas is not technically a rocker, the pop star definitely lives a big, glamorous life. So it’s not totally shocking that Kate was reportedly hooking up with the former JoBro in early 2016 (though the 13-year age difference definitely raised a few eyebrows.) And who is Kate with now? It's rumopred to be DJ/producer/songwriter Diplo—the musical force behind Justin Bieber's "Where Are U Now" and even a writer on Beyonce's smash "Run the World (Girls)."
Type: Basketball players
We totally get why Khloé keeps finding men on the basketball court—the NBA is filled with some hot eye candy. But it also apprears to be filled with some of the biggest heartbreakers too. In 2008 she briefly dated Rashad McCants (he was with the Minnesota Timberwolves at the time)—until she famously hacked into his voicemail on an episode of Khloé and Kourtney Take Miami and discovered he was unfaithful. Then of course she dated Lamar Odom (playing for the Los Angeles Lakers at the time) for just a month before they married in 2009. They separated in 2013 but because of Lamar’s troubles with addiction and infidelity they just recently finalized their divorce. Last year she briefly dated James Harden of the Houston Rockets but revealed they split because he wasn’t faithful. And now? She’s serious with Cleveland Cavaliers’ player Tristan Thompson—though it’s tough to tell just how serious. Khloe posted a picture on Instagram, her hand on top of Tristan’s, both featuring lots of Cavalier themed bling (he just received his 2016 NBA championship ring).
Type: Models (mostly of the Victoria’s Secret kind)
Adam Levine dated four models before marrying number five—his current wife and baby mama Behati Prinsloo. In 2009, he was linked to model/actress Angela Bellotte and then he was quite serious with Victoria’s Secret model Anne Vyalitsyna, also known as Anne V., from 2010 to 2012. She even appeared in the Maroon 5 music video for "Misery." For a hot minute after Adam and Anne broke up, he first got together with Behati (also a VS model, of course). They briefly split and Adam dated Nina Agdal—yes, another VS model. But then he realized Behati was the “one” and they not only got back together but also were engaged almost immediately. Two years of marriage and one baby later, it seems like sticking to his type led to true love!
Type: Pop stars
At just 21-years-old, supermodel and “it” girl Gigi Hadid has already had her fair share of serious—and high profile romances. And all her beaus have pop star/boyband roots. She was with Australian pop star/heartthrob Cody Simpson for almost two years. They even famously posed for Mario Testino wearing nothing but towels. But after they split in May 2015, she was almost immediately linked with Joe Jonas. It only lasted for about six months due to their crazy schedules and remain friendly—though it’s surely tough for Joe to see Gigi with her current beau, former One Direction member Zayn Malik.
Type: Tall, dark and brooding
Russell Brand, John Mayer and Orlando Bloom may seem different to you—but on a closer look, all of Katy’s loves are really quite similar. You could say that they’ve all been misunderstood in some way: Russell is supposed to be a funny guy but he’s dealt with some powerful demons in the form of addiction. John writes truly melancholy, gut wrenching songs—yet he’s actually hilarious, even trying his hand at stand-up comedy. And Orlando? Well, he’s a tough nut to crack—especially since he’s known for his dark roles in Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean. We know that Katy’s divorce from Russell was devastating (he told her via text) and we saw how John kinda strung her along for a bit—so hopefully things with current boyfriend Orlando are meant to be (he reportedly “buried” her in flowers for her 32nd birthday so definitely a good sign!)
Type: Internationally known models with accents
It’s hard to keep track because Leo has dated so many models over the years—most famously Gisele Bundchen from 2000 to 2005—and they all pretty much look alike. Which is not a bad thing since they’re all incredibly gorgeous. Leo’s gals include Bar Refaeli, Anna Vyalitsyna, Erin Heatherton, Toni Garrn and now Nina Agdal who many say could be the “one” the Oscar winner and perpetual bachelor finally settles down with.
Type: Hot (mostly older) guys
From boyfriends to friends, Jennifer Lawrence knows how to surround herself with the best of the best. Her inner circle features girls like Adele, Emma Stone and Amy Schumer. And her men? They just all happen to hail from places with ridiculously charming and sexy accents. There’s Nicholas Hoult, her British born, X-Men co-star who she dated for three years before they officially split in 2014. And then who did JLaw rebound with? None other than Gwyneth Paltrow’s sexy British ex and Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin. The two were on-again, off-again in 2015 but reportedly couldn’t make things work because he was so “non-committal.” And while she never officially dated her Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth, Jen did admit to making out with him off-screen! His accent? Australian. So now we understand why she just couldn’t resist.
Type: Hopeless romantics who become songs
With a long string of boyfriends—all fodder for Taylor’s hit songs of course—it’s hard to pinpoint what, if anything, they have in common. But upon further inspection, a “type” does emerge and it seems that Taylor is into the soulful and super romantic (with messy, tousled hair). Tom Hiddleston wore a “I Heart T.S.” shirt in her honor, Calvin Harris didn’t shy away from PDA, Harry Styles gifted her with matching paper airplane necklaces and Jake Gyllenhaal made her a part of his family.
